A Titillating Taste of Tradition

Apple tart is hardly unique to South African cuisine, but cooking with fruit and vegetables is an important part of our food heritage, something we also celebrate during September. The tart's flavours of apple, caramel and pastry also beg for a méthode champenoise sparkling wine where the traditional preparation method ensures yeasty notes and apple flavours.

Try our recipe for an old-fashioned apple tart and enjoy it with our 2019 La Motte Cap Classique!
